Hock Shield ULTRA - S/M Regular Horse - per pair

The Ultra is a full wrap to ensure coverage even if they have an extra hard way of twisting while pushing off the ground. It can also be used for horses with arthritic hocks to prevent chill. The thin neoprene and double layer of fleece make a very comfortable but tough boot that can be worn full-time for those horses with deep chronic sores.

How to determine the correct size:

  • Measure the smallest point just above the hock joint.
  • Make sure the leg is straight and the hoof is flat on the ground.

13” up to 15.9″= Regular Horse

16” up to 20″= XL/Draft


13″ – 14.9″ = S/M

15″ – 16.9″ = L/XL



How to attach Hock Shield:

VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure the leg is straight under and the hoof is flat on the ground.

  1. Put the side with the label on the outside of the leg.
  2. Bring the elastic strap around the inside of leg to the outside.
  3. Pull the strap for a “snug” fit.
  4. Lock top Velcro flap down.
  5. Adjust inside tab ONLY if outside tab is too long or too short.

Best fit for Click Hock Shield and Hock Shield Ultra

  • Make sure the leg is straight under and the hoof is flat on the ground.
  • You should be able to put two fingers between the horse’s leg and the band.
  • DO NOT pull the elastic strap too tight so as to restrict circulation or create pressure sores. It is better to go too loose than too tight.
  • With a little experimentation, you will find the perfect fit.


Q: Do Hock Shields really stay up?
A: The Hock Shield was designed to address this very issue. In a 3-week test the Hock Shield had a 100% “stay up” score and a 98% “no turn” score.


If you are having trouble with your Hock Shield slipping down try going a little tighter or a little looser. Keep experimenting.

Make sure the leg is straight under them when you put it on (see photo below). If their leg is stepping forward or behind, the Hock Shield will be too loose when they move.

There are a few horses, because of conformation or their pushing technique, that will have trouble keeping them up.

    Product actually works

    Very happy with the hock shields. As long as you make sure they are properly adjusted, they stay on brilliantly. Need to be taken off and re adjusted every couple of days, due to the horse rolling, they can loosen a bit.

    Hock Shield Ultra L/XL & S/M

    Fantastic fitting system with Elastic & Velcro. Really soft flexible materials that don't over heat. Hock sore's have healed now. I use them every night as preventative measure as the ground is so hard. Highly recommend. I have tried neoprene Shield which overheated and my mare lost all the hair around her hock & inner leg. She's a happy horse now. And I'm a very happy customer. Thanks

    These are perfect, just what we needed for our horse that’s continually got hock sores. Have helped heal and prevent any further sores. Will always keep a pair of these on hand .
